  • YouTube Kids App Launches On LG Samsung And Sony Smart TVs

YouTube Kids is a version of YouTube age-gated so kids can watch it without finding anything made for mature audiences. However, in a recent announcement the developers confirmed that they are rolling out the Youtube Kids app to specific smart televisions. "We've heard from families that they love watching videos on all their devices so bringing the entertaining and enriching content of YouTube Kids to the biggest personal screen (your TV!) seemed like the ideal fit". The service allows parents to effectively control the content that their children have access to, without having to micro-manage content on a per-video basis.

Google says YouTube Kids has been quite successful so far, seeing more than 30 billion views from more than 8 million weekly active users.

YouTube Kids was only available on mobile platforms earlier but now the app will come on Smart TV sets which fall under the brand name of LG, Sony, and Samsung.
